One of our clients, McCamant & Durrett Architects won a Gold Nugget Award with an affordable housing project, Petaluma Avenue Homes. The project provides 45 units of affordable housing with solar power and a wildlife area. We photographed this project in March and one of the things we like is the open space and pathways. Vehicle parking is on the perimeter which keeps the open space available for community activities, and children. It’s like having a playground right outside your door.
